You've all been waiting, coming in and asking after them everyday, and they're finally here:
Illex Kinni's beautiful new line of men's and women's shoes. Each pair has a blackish (their word choice) leather exterior lined with striking, bright blue pig hide (the softest there is to prevent painful breaking-in time). They are beautifully crafted and a sharp addition to the Berlin shoe-scene.
Illex Kinni is a Melbourne/San Francisco based design duo consisting of Casey Egan and Jillian Shannon. It has been called "quite possible the best leather boot collection" with each shoe more appealing than the last.
We've got a variety of sizes in right now for immediate sale (men's in women's, women's in men's....typically blurry Berlin gender scheme). Sam is sporting the men's Yourke's and I'm wearing the women's Collective... we'll see, maybe we switch.
Here are some images from their Lookbook so you can see the shoes in action in the woods

And here are details of The Dancer (above) and The Yourke (below) to highlight the beautiful detailing: Come in and try a pair on.

After getting back from Paris fashion week with the lovely Roni Ginach, I was very pleased to see that one of the ranges I was viewing, Rittenhouse, is already getting great press. (In addition to the rest of our labels, I tacked Ksubi on at the end of the trip...and now I can't wait till February at Line Gallery)
Also have a look at Illex Kinni, they're coming into the store very soon. www.illexkinni.com A friend of mine, Casey Egan, is one of the people behind the label... I'm so excited to get them in the shop and also represent them in Europe.
We'll talk more about Illex kinni Later this week, so keep posted.
Two posts ago I raved for a while about Rittenhouse. Today, when unwrapping and hanging the beautiful parcels that arrived from Australia, I was overwhelmed with emotion. The clothing just felt so good to touch and the detailing is just gorgeous. The last post had images of the collection generally, most of which we have, but below are some extras that weren't included last time.
From the men's collection:
Turn Back Cuffed Button Tee Shirt
Hand Embroidered Tee Shirt
Hidden Covered Button Cardi, available in this color:
And an example from the women's collection:
New Jersey Pant, in this color:
Very soft and very strong, these new pieces are a pleasure to have. Today a woman who we think might have been Welsh came in and said, "your clothing feels very beautiful, and seems like it would look beautiful on, too." It was sweet of her. And it's true.
It's cold now. No more short shorts, no more summer dresses, no more fun. It's is time to get serious, get off the beach and go back to work. So for the Back-to-School/Office push, start looking into a new pair of pants, and of those, we have plenty.
Here are some examples, you may have seen a few of these before, but come try them on, you never know with pants.
Sass & Bide:
Keep your eye out for upcoming events at Line Gallery this fall, and for god's sake keep your pants on.
